Maria Cerne

I am a little obsessed with interiors. Born to a commercial builder, and very stylish mama, building and style are in my genes. Having worked for over 17 years in advertising and marketing, I now combine this experience with my passion for interiors, styling and design.

I started by own business Studio Black Interiors, two years ago while studying. My design style is inspired by the balance between function, beauty and simplicity.  The spaces we live in, are not just a physical structure they have the power to bring us joy and meaning, and a place to connect.

My design aesthetic is modern, minimal and paired back. Simplicty - so the essential can shine. I like to focus on clean lines, beautiful finishes, combined with materials and textures that are warm and inviting.  Design to me is telling a story that can be brought to life through textures, patterns, colours, materials and items that hold meaning.

I live and breathe design. My aim is to be multi-faceted in this industry. I currently work across a range of areas - as a residential designer, interior stylist, editorial product stylist and writer. As a small business owner, I’m learning that an interior designer is a listener, interpreter and creator. I am so excited to see what the future holds. Don’t tell people your dreams. Show them.
